still life antique

"This is a little old Maytag Oil Can, made in Newton, Iowa that I
found in my mom and dads old shed a few years ago. I am sure dad
never thought of it as an antique collectible, it was just one of
his old oil cans that he knew he would use for something, someday.
He would of thought it funny that I would do a painting of it."

"There was a great buy on Strawberries at the grocery the other day.
I just had to have some for my breakfast cereal. It's funny how we
look at these daily items and never really look. When I was painting
them I began to realize how complicated they are with their little
indentions and tiny seeds."
